#90 | Interview with a Vampire

Although not usually considered a great cinematic feature, Interview with a Vampire (1994) is a nostalgic vampire flick that I do thoroughly enjoy watching. Yes, it can often be cringe worthy and all of the performances get over shadowed by the greatness that is Tom Cruise but nonetheless, this feature is distinct and has brought a new layer to the ever growing vampire genre and style.


After existing on earth for over 200 years, a vampire finally tells his epic life story: love, betrayal, loneliness, and hunger. After the death of his wife and daughter, Spanish lord Louis (Brad Pitt) is turned into a vampire by Lestat de Lioncourt (Tom Cruise). To keep Louis by his side, Lestat converts a plague-ridden girl, Claudia (Kirsten Dunst), who forms a strong bond with Louis and relies on him, giving Louis a purpose. Interview with a Vampire (1994) is dark and brooding, consistently. The film never breaks out of this soulfully sad and somber atmosphere, it can be slightly draining to watch at times, this movie is nowhere near perfect but with a cast this talented and a genuinely original storyline, this feature has become a cult classic and a nostalgic favourite of mine.
